We've had the ability to add and edit colorways, but no way to add an entirely new item. I've gone and added that feature now. Same user levels apply. All members can add, if you want to edit and don't see the link, shoot me a PM and I will give you the ability.

On the main database page, there will be a link at the bottom to add an item. This will allow you to enter most anything including choosing a family. If you had already navigated to a specific family, the Add link will be there, but it will prefill the family field for you. Some like Stretchline or Square O, will go into the Family (Alt) field, since items can have more than one alternate group. Things that aren't glasses won't have this, so you won't need to worry about them.

On the colorway listing page, I've moved the Add Color link down a bit, and put a Change link in as well to edit the details. This will allow you to alter the detail entry, as well as assign a master image (assuming some have been added for the colorways).

Thanks Dann, but are you sure you're ready to give up control of your baby? Either way, this is a heads up that I'll probably forget this is available and ask you to do it for me. When that happens, just call me an idiot.

Still some control. In the past few have used it, and I usually do some maintenance on anything new anyway.

I was going to add one today to the Jupiter Squared page but when I hit the ADD button it went to a "page not found" screen.

Page not found, or page cannot be displayed. If the latter see if it lists anything under the "Error Type:" section towards the middle. Probably missing some field that the database requires. Thanks.

Thanks I'll give it another shot later today.

EDIT got it to work, I need to read simple directions :)

Hijacking thread so I don't create a new one.

In the future I'd like the SI designation to be in the OPD field, vs the Signature or Collection. There's too many times it conflicts especially now that we have things like the B Ross Fuel Cell, which is also part of a Flag Heritage Collection, and also only on SI. A quick database look showed that the OPD field in all cases was never used, so I think that's a safe bet to leave the other two open.

I'm sure there's places where I omitted the SI because there wasn't room, so feel free to add it back in. I already ran a batch update to take care of the 300+ records so we wouldn't have to sift through manually for the older records.
